Default ABS Delete Write-Up

This is a write up that I know deletes ABS on 97-01 XJs. I just did this myself, figured I'd make a post to help others out.


Step 1: disconnect battery & remove brake lines going from proportioning valve to the ABS module

Step 2: remove ABS module (disconnect the harness and just put it aside)

Step 3: remove ABS fuse/relay (I had 1 relay and 2 fuses)

Step 4: get a proportioning valve from a non ABS XJ, (unscrew the threaded fitting on the back and put it in place of the plug on your proportioning valve)

Step 5: route new brake lines. You need to replace the 2 lines on the bottom of the proportioning valve and the insert the line into the new port on the back of the valve. (Part numbers from MOPAR are listed below)

Step 6: bleed the brakes & triple check everything for leaks. DONE!

MOPAR brake line part numbers:

52128381 - $8.75
52128170 - $4.10
52127988AC - $12.00

Does this cause any other issues, say check engine/brake lights since the system was originally set up for ABS?

No sir. I'm still running it without any problems. This write up will be doing it the same as it would've come from the factory

I know I'm prolly gonna get noogied for reviving an old post. But, I would like pictures of the ABS module. To see what it looks like.

Also, how does one find out if thier XJ has ABS installed on thier vehicle? I don't THINK I have ABS on my '95 country edition xj.. but I wouldnt know an ABS component from Addam if we passed each other on a foggy night.

Black box with a bunch of brake lines coming out of it on the driver side. Also if you have a 8.25 axle no abs.
